The recipe looks very tasty. I am unsure what kind of wheat biscuits would I use? At the store I saw graham crackers that are made of wheat flour, (and salty crackers called wheat biscuits). Maybe a not too sweet type cracker/cookie would that be more acceptable and if not, what other suggestions could I look for?. I live in NYC. Waiting to try this recipe.
